Mission Statement

HomelessToFarmers is on a mission to eliminate homelessness, poverty, and advance society.

Description

HomelessToFarmers is a nonprofit in California. We are very small, new, and thus unproven. We know that homelessness is an age-old problem. We know that shelters, and advocacy groups exist, but have limitations. In California, the homeless population has increased over the last few years. According to Einstein, "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

We do not mean to insult shelters, or advocacy groups. They work but have limitations, and we need to add a different kind of solutions to the mix. HomelessToFarmers takes the approach of creating businesses, and thus opportunities. Actually, this idea is not new. This had been tried by a few successful nonprofits, such as Delancey Street and Homeboy Industries. HomelessToFarmers intends to study the success of these nonprofits and figure out how to scale them.

We have engineering background, and part of our daily job, we innovate and solve problems, and sometimes that means examining everything, leaving no stone unexamined until we find a solution that works. We want to apply our innovation, and problem solving skills to solve human problems.
